Portadown must win tonight against Cork City if they want to have any say in the outcome of this year's Setanta Cup.
And despite a hard-fought victory over Donegal Celtic at the weekend the Ports may struggle against their southern counterparts as club captain, John Convery, remains out with a ruptured Achilles tendon.
Billy Woods will be missing for City due to work commitments, while Seán Kelly is set to miss the tie after getting injured during Friday's win over UCD.
And FIFA rules are still keeping Gareth Farrelly and Colin Healy out of the Cork set-up.
Kick-off at Shamrock Park is at 7.45pm.
